Dean Riggs
This newsletter reports on EE alumna Daisy Green as well as inspiring work by some of the faculty and students. Additionally, we have updates on retired professors Gordon Dugan, Shu Lin, and Ron Knapp.

I also want to remind you of the 18th Annual CoE Banquet April 19 at the Hawai‘i Convention Center. We are mixing it up a little bit, and we hope you will find the program refreshing. There are exciting moves afoot in CoE, some of which will be highlighted at the banquet. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

I hope everyone finds something of interest in this newsletter. As always, please feel free to send me comments or suggestions for the next one.
